MilesTones • How’s That Again?

Political statements have become so confusing that MilesTones has coined a new description of the water-boarding of words that have sprung forth from the Obomunism Party, which is, “Circular Verbosity,” a system of word-bombing that trots the hearer into a complete confined circle concluding with a statment that sounds so definite that it might be taken seriously while actually becoming, as William Shakespeare would say, “Much ado about nothing,” since you verbally wind up exactly where you started from.

Struggling to explain his health care bill today, Obama said this to The Washington Post; “Deliberation is fine, but at some point it’s just delaying. A longer wait to make the hard choices on health care is not increasing the odds of success.”  Really!  Perhaps a philosopoher should be appointed to the cabinet who can reason out the deeper meanings of governmental statements that appear to say nothing.
